This excellent book was previously released as Out of the Question'Into the Mystery. I agree with Chris Seay, author of The Gospel According to Tony Soprano who said, "Len Sweet has really done it this time! In true midrash form, Len exposes the beauty of a relationship with our Creator. He asks all the hard questions and leads us to a place of grace beyond the formulaic answers. throw all your selfhelp books in the trash and immerse yourself in a book that will help you see your faith journey in a whole new way."

Sweet says, "Belief can exist in isolation, but faith requires a relationship." He explains it this way: "As Christians we often talk about developing a 'personal relationship' with Christ, but instead of pursuing a relationship, we pursue knowledge. We are tempted to place confidence in our definite, settled beliefs, which offer a pale substitute for the daily adventure of an honest relationship with Jesus."

Leonard Sweet is a master with words. When I read one of his books I find myself wanting to underline or highlight every sentence.
